LAS VEGAS, NV, March 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — Amidst the Coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic, Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) announced today, that its Veteran’s Village Kins Community stands as one of the safest places to be while state governments across America begin to enforce quarantine and social distancing. The 500+ acres in Golden Valley, Arizona was specifically designed to grow and sell Hemp CBD and CBG products to manufacturers and benefit veterans but is quickly becoming known as a potential safe haven of sort for rehabilitation, healing, and economic empowerment through its back-to-nature initiatives, sustainable operational practices, and ideal layout of a sparsely populated desert environment with lots of sun and fresh air.
“The novel coronavirus is causing unprecedented disruption and wreaking havoc on markets so these are challenging times. However, I do believe we will, collectively, recover and overcome these challenges by moving back to nature and considering the eco-friendly solutions that have been previously dismissed,” said Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. “People are panicking, especially in densely populated cities. Our Veteran’s Village Kins Community has plenty of space where social distancing wouldn’t even be an issue during our Hempathon.”
The Veteran’s Village Kins Community (VVKC) has partnered with Hemp Inc. to host, the Great American Hempathon (“Hempathon”), which is underway now for the first growing season of 2020. Upon arrival to the VVKC’s Hempathon, participants are settling in with their motorhome, 5th wheeler, trailer, van, bus, tent, dome, etc. After they settle into what feels to be a potential safe haven from Corona scares, participants then begin to prepare and test their soil, remove rock from their one acre, and add desired soil amendments.
According to Perlowin, an influx of participants for the Hempathon can easily be accommodated. The Company has an additional 4,000 acres it can expand into and another 4,000 acres available to purchase. “I think up to an additional 8,000 acres are plenty if we need to expand over the 500! Even with social distancing, we can accommodate a lot of people. If this is something that is appealing to you, submit your information as soon as possible because we expect to fill up quickly under the current circumstances,” said Perlowin.

“I recently came across an article about the Coronavirus and the sun written by Richard Hobday. It’s a great 6-minute read. As I read it, I thought it described Hemp, Inc.’s Hempathon just as perfectly as we described it in a previous press release in terms of an environment that could be considered a safe haven from the Coronavirus and the panic it is causing worldwide. We have decided to print that article in its entirety to allow our readers to understand the benefits of joining us on our 500-acre Veteran Village Kins Community and participating in the Hempathon. Keep in mind, these 500 acres are surrounded by tens of thousands of acres of very sparsely populated desert environment with lots of sun and fresh air,” says Perlowin.
Coronavirus and the Sun: a Lesson from the 1918 Influenza Pandemic
Published March 10, 2020 on www.medium.com
Fresh air, sunlight, and improvised face masks seemed to work a century ago; and they might help us now.
by Richard Hobday
When new, virulent diseases emerge, such as SARS and Covid-19, the race begins to find new vaccines and treatments for those affected. As the current crisis unfolds, governments are enforcing quarantine and isolation, and public gatherings are being discouraged. Health officials took the same approach 100 years ago, when influenza was spreading around the world. The results were mixed. But records from the 1918 pandemic suggest one technique for dealing with influenza — little-known today — was effective. Some hard-won experience from the greatest pandemic in recorded history could help us in the weeks and months ahead.
Put simply, medics found that severely ill flu patients nursed outdoors recovered better than those treated indoors. A combination of fresh air and sunlight seems to have prevented deaths among patients; and infections among medical staff. There is scientific support for this. Research shows that outdoor air is a natural disinfectant. Fresh air can kill the flu virus and other harmful germs. Equally, sunlight is germicidal and there is now evidence it can kill the flu virus.
`Open-Air’ Treatment in 1918
During the great pandemic, two of the worst places to be were military barracks and troop-ships. Overcrowding and bad ventilation put soldiers and sailors at high risk of catching influenza and the other infections that often followed it.[2,3] As with the current Covid-19 outbreak, most of the victims of so-called `Spanish flu’ did not die from influenza: they died of pneumonia and other complications.
When the influenza pandemic reached the East coast of the United States in 1918, the city of Boston was particularly badly hit. So the State Guard set up an emergency hospital. They took in the worst cases among sailors on ships in Boston harbor. The hospital’s medical officer had noticed the most seriously ill sailors had been in badly-ventilated spaces. So he gave them as much fresh air as possible by putting them in tents. And in good weather, they were taken out of their tents and put in the sun. At this time, it was common practice to put sick soldiers outdoors. Open-air therapy, as it was known, was widely used on casualties from the Western Front. And it became the treatment of choice for another common and often deadly respiratory infection of the time; tuberculosis. Patients were put outside in their beds to breathe fresh outdoor air. Or they were nursed in cross-ventilated wards with the windows open day and night. The open-air regimen remained popular until antibiotics replaced it in the 1950s.
Doctors who had first-hand experience of open-air therapy at the hospital in Boston were convinced the regimen was effective. It was adopted elsewhere. If one report is correct, it reduced deaths among hospital patients from 40 percent to about 13 percent. According to the Surgeon General of the Massachusetts State Guard:
`The efficacy of open air treatment has been absolutely proven, and one has only to try it to discover its value.’
Fresh Air is a Disinfectant
Patients treated outdoors were less likely to be exposed to the infectious germs that are often present in conventional hospital wards. They were breathing clean air in what must have been a largely sterile environment. We know this because, in the 1960s, Ministry of Defence scientists proved that fresh air is a natural disinfectant. Something in it, which they called the Open Air Factor, is far more harmful to airborne bacteria — and the influenza virus — than indoor air. They couldn’t identify exactly what the Open Air Factor is. But they found it was effective both at night and during the daytime.
Their research also revealed that the Open Air Factor’s disinfecting powers can be preserved in enclosures — if ventilation rates are kept high enough. Significantly, the rates they identified are the same ones that cross-ventilated hospital wards, with high ceilings and big windows, were designed for. But by the time the scientists made their discoveries, antibiotic therapy had replaced open-air treatment. Since then the germicidal effects of fresh air have not featured in infection control, or hospital design. Yet harmful bacteria have become increasingly resistant to antibiotics.
Sunlight and Influenza Infection
Putting infected patients out in the sun may have helped because it inactivates the influenza virus. It also kills bacteria that cause lung and other infections in hospitals. During the First World War, military surgeons routinely used sunlight to heal infected wounds. They knew it was a disinfectant. What they didn’t know is that one advantage of placing patients outside in the sun is they can synthesise vitamin D in their skin if sunlight is strong enough. This was not discovered until the 1920s. Low vitamin D levels are now linked to respiratory infections and may increase susceptibility to influenza. Also, our body’s biological rhythms appear to influence how we resist infections. New research suggests they can alter our inflammatory response to the flu virus. As with vitamin D, at the time of the 1918 pandemic, the important part played by sunlight in synchronizing these rhythms was not known.
Face Masks Coronavirus and Flu
Surgical masks are currently in short supply in China and elsewhere. They were worn 100 years ago, during the great pandemic, to try and stop the influenza virus spreading. While surgical masks may offer some protection from infection they do not seal around the face. So they don’t filter out small airborne particles. In 1918, anyone at the emergency hospital in Boston who had contact with patients had to wear an improvised face mask. This comprised five layers of gauze fitted to a wire frame which covered the nose and mouth. The frame was shaped to fit the face of the wearer and prevent the gauze filter touching the mouth and nostrils. The masks were replaced every two hours; properly sterilized and with fresh gauze put on. They were a forerunner of the N95 respirators in use in hospitals today to protect medical staff against airborne infection.
Staff at the hospital kept up high standards of personal and environmental hygiene. No doubt this played a big part in the relatively low rates of infection and deaths reported there. The speed with which their hospital and other temporary open-air facilities were erected to cope with the surge in pneumonia patients was another factor. Today, many countries are not prepared for a severe influenza pandemic. Their health services will be overwhelmed if there is one. Vaccines and antiviral drugs might help. Antibiotics may be effective for pneumonia and other complications. But much of the world’s population will not have access to them. If another 1918 comes, or the Covid-19 crisis gets worse, history suggests it might be prudent to have tents and pre-fabricated wards ready to deal with large numbers of seriously ill cases. Plenty of fresh air and a little sunlight might help too.

“Our eco-villages are a prime example of an innovative, green solution. With spring upon use, we have hundreds of organic fruit trees starting to blossom and spring planting for organically grown vegetables is starting now. Now more than ever, we need to engage in sustainability, commune with nature, and look toward a greener way of being.”
The Company’s Veteran’s Village provides veterans a place to live, a source of income, and access to a healthy living environment. Veterans have the opportunity to earn a share of the profits from the farms, which they can then use to buy land to start their own kins community.
“At a time like this, just imagine what a perfect summer vacation it would be to get away from the city and grow an acre of hemp placing social distancing at least a 100 feet away from the closest farmer with lots of sun and fresh air while simultaneously getting the education of a lifetime. Not to mention, earning money growing hemp as well as doing any other business since the entire 500 acres has WiFi access and live streaming video,” said Perlowin. “There are already more than a few people in motorhomes, 5th wheelers and tents on the property and more are headed here.” To register for the Hempathon, in the healthiest environment we can think of, click here.
The final version, of our Kins communities, has a 40-acre hemp field that will be split up among all of the residents. Each kins domain is 2.5 acres with a “living fence” around the perimeter consisting of two rows of trees, including fruit trees and olive trees, organic gardens, a natural beehive, a family tree, a sustainable off grid house, and a pond; each 2.5 acre plot can also support 1 acre of hemp. The long-term vision of Hemp, Inc.’s CEO is to establish Kins communities for veterans, orphans, homeless people, healers and other groups of people who will be living and working on site in all of the various communities.

The global industrial hemp market size is expected to reach USD 15.26 billion by 2027, exhibiting a revenue-based CAGR of 15.8% over the forecast period, according to a new report published by Grand View Research, Inc. This growth can be attributed to the burgeoning preference for eco-friendly products.
Hemp, Inc. is a global leader in the industrial hemp industry with bi-coastal processing centers, including the largest multipurpose industrial hemp processing facility in Spring Hope, NC, a state-of-the-art local processing center in Southern Oregon, a 500-acre hemp growing Veteran Village Kins Community in Golden Valley, Arizona, two model “Small Family Hemp Farms” in North Carolina and Arizona, and a pre-roll blending manufacturing facility in Las Vegas, NV, and The King of Hemp StoreTM, a 5,000 square-foot retail location in Kingman, Arizona.
It’s no surprise Hemp, Inc. revenues are flowing in from every direction. After building a broad-based multi-state U.S. infrastructure over the last 10 years, Perlowin believes this year, 2020, will be the biggest year of revenues for Hemp, Inc. as shown below:
- DrillwallTM – Their wholly owned subsidiary, Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC (IHM) in North Carolina is now fulfilling a $1 million dollar sales agreement for its DrillWall™, their proprietary kenaf-hemp blend natural Loss Circulation Material (LCM) product for the oil and gas well drilling industries. The Company has executed a sales agreement to sell $1 million worth of DrillWall™ over the course of one year. (Read the full press release here.)
- The King of Hemp Store™ – Hemp, Inc. also had a soft launch of The King of Hemp Store™, its flagship, brick-and-mortar retail store in Kingman, Arizona, last month. The store is expected to officially open next month. According to executives, The King of Hemp Store will carry as hemp shirts, pants, hemp denim jeans, jackets, backpacks, purses, handbags, topicals, shampoos, conditioners and a variety of cannabidiol (CBD) and CBG products such as flower. A lounge area in which community members can learn more about hemp, in a relaxing setting, is also planned as part of the store. The proceeds from the sale of its products will go to help children, the homeless and veterans. The plan is to utilize money earned at the store to create activities and subsequent venues for the children of Kingman, Golden Valley, and Dolan Springs, Arizona. (To read the full release, click here.)
- King of HempTM Pre-Rolls – Hemp, Inc.’s King of HempTM pre-rolls are also bringing in revenue for the company. The much anticipated King of HempTM pre-roll line didn’t disappoint once it launched as distributors reported quick sales in a matter of hours after stocking the high-quality CBD smokeables. One distributor, in particular, sold almost 300 King of HempTM pre-rolls in a week after listing it on its website, www.naturalexposurecbd.com, and noticed a huge interest for autographed King of Hemp pre-rolls from the King of Hemp himself, Bruce Perlowin. Based on the interest, Perlowin expects the current limited edition (signed and numbered) to be extremely valuable in the collector’s market in the future. The Company is also transitioning from the current packaging to hemp packaging.
Derived from one of the top selling cultivars on the market, Pre-98 OG Bubba Kush, the King of HempTM pre-rolls are already positioned to corner the market as one of the best tasting for hemp consumption and is expected to be a massive revenue generator for the company. (To read the full release, click here.)
- Pre-98 OG Bubba Kush – The Pre-98 OG Bubba Kush is Hemp, Inc.’s top-shelf CBD flower sourced from certified growers to ensure high CBD content, eye-popping aesthetics, and clean genetics. The company has made 10,000 lbs. of Pre-98 OG Bubba Kush available for sale at a wholesale price ranging from $500 to $800 per pound and that is just a small percentage of the Company’s Oregon grow output. The rest of the grow will be used for the King of HempTM pre-rolls which is expected to earn the Company more than three times as much money as selling it wholesale. (For those interested in purchasing the company’s hemp buds, email email@example.com.)
- The Great American Hempathon – The Company’s first ever grow contest recently opened enrollment and is scheduled to take place during the first growing season of 2020, which begins this month, and includes planting, maintaining, harvesting, and processing. Hemp growers will demonstrate their skill and share in the $50,000 prize money. Each team is responsible for installing irrigation systems, preparing the soil, and maintaining the grow operation.

VETERAN VILLAGE KINS COMMUNITIES
To see the livestream feed for the Veteran’s Village Kins Community Arizona, visit www.hempinc.com/arizona and click on “View Live Feed”.
The company’s 500-acre strategic growing partner Veteran Village Kins Community in Golden Valley, Arizona, is designed to grow hemp and produce CBD products to benefit veterans as well as generate revenue for Hemp, Inc., the Veteran Village and individual veterans living in the community.
The Veteran Village Kins Community in Arizona has completed its final site plan blueprints for its 500-acre site in Golden Valley, Arizona (20 miles north of Kingman, AZ and 90 minutes from Las Vegas, NV). The site plan was submitted to the Mohave County Building Department for final review. The Company is also in the final stages of completing the necessary infrastructure to support an off-grid, renewable, energy system.
As soon as all the live streaming video cameras are up and operational, the world can actually see the way the Veteran Village Kins Community is designed and watch it being built. According to Perlowin, the basic framework or overall plan of the Veteran Village Kins Communities is to create a holistic healing and learning center that is designed to educate and heal veterans with PTSD, alcoholism, meth addiction, opioid addiction, and other psychological conditions while at the same time training them on the numerous aspects of being part of the emerging multi-billion dollar hemp industry. To see the first live streaming video, click here.
The Company will also build hemp-growing communities for other groups such as “Abused” Women & Children Village Kins Communities, the “Orphaned” Children Village Kins Communities, “Homeless” Village Kins Communities, and the “Healers” Village Kins Communities (the healers are professionals who are knowledgeable in the modalities to treat these traumatized groups). These particular communities are all synergistically aligned to work simultaneously supporting each other.
For example, the “Healers” heal the traumatized veterans and women & children; the women support orphan children, and orphan children want to see people living in homes and not homeless. Thus, a portion of the hemp grown in each community goes to create and support another community, giving everybody a sense of giving back and helping others as they help themselves. This circles back to the healers who also work to heal the veterans and the other traumatized groups. This is the economic foundation on how the sale of the hemp products operates as a “quantum economic matrix” or an example of “symbiotic economics” which is more complex than this brief description allows.
Dwight Jory, the Project Manager for the “Veteran Village Kins Community Arizona, Inc.”, said, “We are very happy with the progress. Our Kins Community is really beginning to come together.” In anticipation of planting to begin during the spring, 300 acres have been fenced, 16 overnight trailer park sites are under construction, and six 40×40-ft organic vegetable gardens have been planted and are currently producing food and kenaf, according to Jory. These organic gardens double as experimental growing modules using an entire array of different growing technologies to see which modalities grow the best in a desert environment. As for the 6 geodesic domes mentioned in an earlier press release, 1 is structurally complete with only the electrical and plumbing to be completed. The rest are on site awaiting final site plan approval.
“We are now accepting volunteers who have expressed an interest in helping to build the first Kins Community for our veterans,” said Jory. Those interested in making the first hemp growing CBD-producing “Veteran Village Kins Community” become a reality should contact Ms. Sandra Williams via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
One thousand trees, on 36 of the 500-acres, have also been planted, with an additional 1,000 trees on order. The “Veteran Village Kins Community” will include a 100,000-square foot GMP compliant, central processing plant, a state-of-the-art testing laboratory, and various health and wellness centers to support veterans who may have psychological, emotional or health issues.
“As Hemp, Inc. positions itself on the forefront of America’s industrial hemp revolution, we see our partnership with ‘Veteran Village Kins Community Arizona, Inc.’ being paramount in supporting the small family farm movement that we are confident will reshape the American landscape,” said Perlowin. “As we work toward getting our eco-village up and running in Arizona, we are also aggressively scouting strategic locations in other states including North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, and West Virginia. Giving veterans and other Americans a place to learn new skills and take part in this multi-billion-dollar hemp CBD market is very exciting. It’s a big part of our mission to give back. Recently we have expanded our Kins Community concept internationally focusing, but not limited to, Israel, New Zealand, Canada, Africa, and Uruguay.”
Hemp, Inc. executives are also continuing to scout new locations nationwide to open additional hemp processing centers in legal markets.

The content will be wholly-owned by Hemp, Inc. 2 Manifest Studio Director Joseph Trivigno and his team have been tracking Hemp, Inc.’s progress, as executives meet with farmers throughout the country to document the company’s expansion into new markets. The documentary is expected to be released by 2020/21. The docuseries is expected to follow the film’s release. The film crew will also capture hemp developments in markets around the globe.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEMP AND MARIJUANA
Hemp is completely different from marijuana in its function, cultivation, and application. In cultivating marijuana, the plants are spaced far apart, and the male plants are destroyed to assure that they cannot seed the female plants, which would result in undesirable, less potent and less marketable, seeded marijuana buds. Hemp, on the other hand, is planted close together and commonly hermaphrodites, which creates an abundance of seeds, the main component of Hemp foods and supplements. The Hemp stalks are processed and used for fiber, composite, and other hemp based end products.
Hemp is used in a variety of other applications that marijuana couldn’t possibly be used in. These include healthy dietary supplements, skin products, clothing, and accessories. Overall, hemp is known to have over 25,000 possible applications. Hemp products such as Hemp Milk, Hemp Cereal, and Hemp Oil are used by consumers every day.

HOW HEMP CAN CHANGE THE WORLD
Fiber – Hemp fiber can be used to make fabrics and textiles, rope and paper. The word ‘canvas’ actually derives from the word cannabis.
Fuel – While the industrial, medicinal and commercial properties of hemp have been known to mankind for a very long time, its benefits to the environment have just been realized in recent years. One of the compelling things hemp offers is fuel. With reserves of petroleum being depleted, it would be nice if we could have a fuel source that was reusable and which we could grow right here, making us completely energy independent.
Food – Hemp seeds are very nutritious and were first thought to be eaten by the Ancient Chinese and Indians. Hemp seeds have a nutty taste and can be eaten raw, ground up, sprouted, or made into dried sprout powder. Hemp seeds also contain a very beneficial oil that is high in unsaturated fatty acids, including an optimal 1:4 ratio of omega-3 to 6.
Building Material – Hemp can be made into a variety of building materials. These include concrete-like blocks called ‘hempcrete’, biodegradable plastics, and wood replacements. These materials have been used in the manufacture of many things, including electronics, cars and houses. In fact, the first American home made of hemp-based materials was completed in August 2010 in Asheville, North Carolina.
Biofuel – Remarkably, the oil from hemp seeds and stalks can also be made into biofuels such as
Biodiesel — sometimes known as ‘hempoline’. While this biofuel can be used to power engines, it does take quite a lot of raw material to produce a substantial amount.
